Bluesman Guy Davis
Guy Davis is a musician, composer, actor, director and writer...but, most importantly, he is a bluesman. While Davis' interest in acting was clearly influenced by the fact that both his parents were well-known actors (the late Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis) Guy has dedicated himself to reviving the traditions of acoustic blues and bringing them to as many ears as possible. Tickets are $15 ($10 for CSJ students with college ID) and can be purchased at the door.
